    BENJAMIN'S JERUSALEM POST OP-ED: Egypt must reap what it sowed to prevent another October 7th

    BENJAMIN'S JERUSALEM POST OP-ED: Egypt must reap what it sowed to prevent another October 7th

    This is Benjamin's own narration of an op-ed published in the Jerusalem Post on Sunday, February 18th 2024.
    Originally titled "Egypt and Gazans Must Reap What They Sowed," it was penned shortly after Israel's heroic rescue of two of our hostages and as the prospect of an IDF incursion into the city of Rafah in southern Gaza continues to gather steam and momentum. 
    The written version of the op-ed can be viewed here:

    BENJAMIN's ISRAEL BRIEFING: Hostage Family Member Aviram Meir with Analysis of Israeli and American Military Campaigns from Yaakov Lappin

    BENJAMIN's ISRAEL BRIEFING: Hostage Family Member Aviram Meir with Analysis of Israeli and American Military Campaigns from Yaakov Lappin

    In this episode of the podcast, I'm joined by Aviram Meir, uncle of Almog Meir-Jan. Almog was kidnapped by Hamas on October 7th. He's a 21 year old civilian. Aviram and I discuss how he sees the current stage of the negotiations for the release of the hostages and he expresses the guilt he carries as the relative of a hostage in the pursuit of whose freedom and return, soldiers of the IDF are fighting - and dying. 
    After that, I'm joined by our in-house analyst Yaakov Lappin for a brief discussion about the U.S. retaliatory strikes in Iraq and Syria, the likelihood of a direct conflict between Israel and Hezbollah and the ongoing war inside the Gaza Strip. 
    As ever, I hope you enjoy the conversation and please remember to subscribe.

    BENJAMIN'S ISRAEL BRIEFING: ICJ ruling, hostage negotiations and IDF progress in Gaza

    BENJAMIN'S ISRAEL BRIEFING: ICJ ruling, hostage negotiations and IDF progress in Gaza

    In this episode of the briefing, I'm joined by Avi Bell, professor of law at Bar Ilan University and University of San Diego, Yaakov Lappin, In-House Analyst at The MirYam Institute and David Hacham, former Advisor on Arab Affairs to successive Israeli Ministers of Defense and a retired Colonel in the IDF.
    Prof. Bell and I began by discussing the ICJ ruling in response to the case brought by South Africa against Israel, the threat of prosecution attempts of IDF soldiers under universal jurisdiction and the powers of enforcement held by the ICJ and the ICC. We went on to talk about the revelations that at least twelve members of UNRWA had been shown to have played a direct role in the Hamas massacre of October 7th. 


    Thereafter, I spoke to Colonel Hacham and Yaakov about the ongoing progress of the IDF inside Gaza, Egypt's resistance to the IDF holding the Rafah crossing in any long term security arrangement, as well as the security perimeter the IDF is establishing around the perimeter of the Strip.  

    As always, I hope that you enjoy the conversation.

    BENJAMIN IN CONVERSATION: with Iris Haim, mother of Yotam Haim, accidentally killed by IDF forces, taken hostage by Hamas on October 7th

    BENJAMIN IN CONVERSATION: with Iris Haim, mother of Yotam Haim, accidentally killed by IDF forces, taken hostage by Hamas on October 7th

    In this episode of the podcast, I sit down to interview Iris Haim, mother of Yotam Haim Z"L, who was kidnapped by Hamas on October 7th, 2023, and killed by IDF soldiers on December 15th, 2023, as the result of a horrific operational miscalculation. 
    On October 7th, 2023, during the murderous massacre against Israel launched by Hamas, Iris's son, Yotam, was kidnapped from his home in Kibbutz Kfar Aza, a community located adjacent to the Gaza Strip. 
    He was 28 years old. 

    From that point onward, Yotam was held in captivity by Hamas and Iris dedicated herself to campaigning for his release and for the release of all of the hostages, taking her message to parliaments, governments and audiences throughout the English speaking world - from Australia to the United Kingdom.  
    Uniquely, Iris also became a leading Israeli voice on the subject of unity, love and support for the Israeli government and the soldiers of the IDF at this time. 
    Rapidly rising to become an opinion leader and a symbol of hope domestically, Iris refused to countenance any calls for division or for internecine fighting within the Jewish state; all the while, Yotam, her son, remained in captivity. 
    On December 7th, 2023, Yotam, together with two other hostages, emerged from where they were being held inside Gaza. Tragically, all three of the hostages were fired upon and killed by members of the Israel Defense Forces, who were operating inside the Gaza Strip. 
    Incredibly, upon learning about this awful series of events, Iris sent a voice note to the soldiers who had killed her son, telling them that she loved them, supported them, and that she and her family invited them to visit her home. Those soldiers did so, and they informed Iris that they had ceased functioning as a result of the tragic miscalculation, but that having received her words and visited with her, they were able to begin returning to service. 
    In this episode of the podcast, I ask Iris about Yotam of blessed memory, about her dedication to Israel's soldiers and society and about her plans for the future. 
    I believe Iris's message to be perhaps the most vital of any I've ever received, and I encourage you to share it with your entire network - far and wide, so that others might benefit from her words and support her in her mission.

    BENJAMIN IN CONVERSATION: with Amir Tibon, Survivor of the October 7th Hamas terror attack against Israel

    BENJAMIN IN CONVERSATION: with Amir Tibon, Survivor of the October 7th Hamas terror attack against Israel

    Amir Tibon moved with his wife Miri to the pastoral Kibbutz Nahal Oz, right on the Gaza border, after the 2014 Israel-Gaza war.
    The couple, then without children, wanted to support the small community. They fell in love with the place and stayed. A year ago, they bought a house there.
    On the morning of October 7, the sounds of falling mortars drove the couple into the reinforced “safe room” in which daughters Galia, 3 and Carmel, 1, were sleeping.  Listen to his dramatic story here in front of a live audience in Manhattan.
